Murray Wants MJ Rehearsals To Show Warning Signs

4/29/2011 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers have subpoenaed Sony for the raw footage from the "This Is It" rehearsals to show the jury ... Michael Jackson was a physical and mental mess before he died ... TMZ has learned.

0428-mj_tour_EX_02

We've learned Murray's lawyers want the tapes to show Jackson was slow, lethargic and weak in the days prior to his death.  Although some of the video shows an alert MJ, other portions, we're told, clearly show something is wrong with the singer.

Murray's lawyers want to show jurors in the manslaughter case ... Michael was ill or even dying before the fateful morning ... so it wasn't really the June 25 Propofol injections that killed MJ.

Headlines --Murray Wants MJ Rehearsals To Show Warning Signs-- of how negligent he was prior to killing Michael Jackson. Duh, Murray thinks MJ was so lethargic, weak or even dying so he shot him full of anxiety drugs. Duh, that didn’t work to overcome lethargy or weakness, so he injected MJ with propofol. Duh, that didn’t work to overcome lethargy or weakness, so he slit open the side of the IV bag, put a bottle of propofol in the bag up-side-down and let it flow into MJ’s body. Duh, it worked, now MJ will never be lethargic or weak again.

OMG, less than 2 weeks before trial begins, the defense team continues to keep us ROTFLOAO. MJ was filled up to his eyes in propofol so how are the TII tapes going to counter that?

Defense says MJ was a physical and mental mess before he died, slow, lethargic and weak, was ill or even dying. That sure says a lot for MJ's doctor huh? Sounds like the defense is prosecuting their own client. LOL

The defense team is an ongoing parody.

Agree Kaprifol....

If Murray had the advantage to know that something was wrong MJ, why he did not help? that's what good doctors does.

guilty! accept it he never thought about MJ's health it was about money that's it. Murray stop and accept what you did.....

Murray has admitted he gave the medicine. Why can't we be concerned with what else happened that night? Are there no concerns about the missing tapes, or who took them, who may have been hiding in the house?

Anything that will show what happened to Michael is worth showing his rehersal tapes. Have you forgotten how Big Boy from the Doctor's office did not bat an eye saying he and Michael were lovers? Have you forgotten the professional Dr. EC said MJJ was with Big Boy and then changed his story and admitted he, a respected professional make up a lie about one of his most famous patients?

Pull your head out of Murrays behind and let us see what really happened to Michael. If the jury has the mentality of some of you, Somebody is going to get away with harming MJJ, and we may never know what happened.

Murray admitted what he did, he did not have the proper equipment, and he left MJJ alone. If nothing else happened that involved someone else who does not wish to be known, then why mess with the recording tapes?

When exactly did his bodyguard get there? Where was he and what was he doing until Murray advised him? Do you trust him? What happened to the cash that MJJ supposedly had in his home.

Yes Murray was wrong and will pay, but just making anyone pay for MJJ's death is not the way to go. If Murray removed the tapes, he could have denied everything....he did not.

There is a history behind the stopping of MJJ fame and many had reason to assist in this. Just like most things, Money is behind this. Somebody knew that house and knew it well. That someone could have easily injected MJJ with additional amounts of the drug.

Why is it the bodyguard did not know someone else was on the property? Until those tapes are found and viewed, I hope they let Murray and his lawyer brings anything in that will TRUTHFULLY show what happened to the most famous man in his time. Fans need to know, and his family needs to know.

Katherine has tried to get into court saying she has need for more money and the public has called her every name in the book. This lady needs to know what happened to her son and if that is the only way to get into court, why not? In court, orders can be given for information she may have from MJJ, but need the courts to legally bring it out. If people insist on hanging Murray and others for something, at least hope the full truth will come out in court and not just the easy way by hanging Murray while someone gets away with possible murder. His mother has information from her son when he was alive, but with everyone pounding and bitching about every move she makes, does she have enough support to let Mjj's concerns be heard? Would it not be better to present this in court legally rather than some news trash magazine that has already allowed her to be bashed, called horrible names and accused of things that are not true?

Michael himself said......Every Ameican citizen has a right to be tried by the courts until he is deemed innocent or guilty.

@ Nan,lily and Kaprifol I agree with you guys. If Michael was so sick when then 1) did Murray tell the insurance company the same day Michael died that he was in excelant health 2)Why then inject a man that is so sickly with a powerful subtance that can even cause him to become weaker. Murrays story keeps on changing he can not get his mind straight.But I guess they are doing everything in their power to get him off the hook. However it does not change the fact Murray is the one that bought the Propofol mind you in boxes so his story does not add up. I hope the jury is smart enough to see how they are trying to just confuse people. Michael did not die because he was weak..he died b/c of a deadly ****tail of medicine/anesthetic that was injected into his body.The only ailment that the autopsy report showed was that he had slight inflammation of the brain and lungs.He had vitiligo ,and lupus otherwise he was healthy according to the reports for a 50 year old man.

not for anything but if they are going to show him in distress in rehearsal before he died and he had a full time physician, you might think his doctor would have stepped in and had his patient hospitalized .instead of giving him anesthesia...i dont follow their logic.

________________________________________________

Good point Nan! The defense keeps coming up with one ridiculous claim after another. If Michael was in bad shape and had died from a condition stemming from poor health, the autopsy report wouldn't have listed a propofol overdose as the cause of death. It stated he was a healthy man for his age. You're going down Murray and I can't wait.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

Murray was MJ's Doctor so if he was weak, lethargic and/or dying it would seem that the Doctor would be the only one who would know that. The average person wouldn't know or have the medical expertise to know who is walking around sick and who isn't, and the average person doesn't have any expert knowledge and couldn't even testify about anybody being sick because it would raise objections that the person testifying IS NOT a doctor so couldn't possibly qualify as one who would know if someone is sick.

But Murray is trying to say that everybody knew EXCEPT the Doctor? That truly does NOT make any sense.

MJ was not well during some of the rehearsals, as Kenny pointed out sending MJ home. However, Murray gave MJ Propofol for weeks, so the condition MJ may have been in still reverts back to Murray and his incompentancies as a medical doctor.

If Murray knew that MJ was "ill and dying" why did he fill him up with all those drugs. If this is true then Murray should be locked up FOR GOOD!! Damn KILLER!!

Oh Please!!

What an ass ho!!

If that is the case, then it's all the more reasons to hang this chupacabra looking clown!!

Why would any Doctor give a sick and dying patient a deadly dose of 'knock-out' medicine??
To Euthanize him, that‘s why!!!

Hang him by his swiveled up balls, if he has any!!!!
